Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card (review by Karen T. ’16)

Ender's Game (Ender's Saga, #1)Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

In a futuristic world on the brink of an alien invasion, Andrew “Ender” Wiggin is accepted into the prestigious Battle School, an orbiting military school dedicated to training soldiers and leaders for the impending third alien invasion. As Ender accelerates through his studies, he encounters both friends and enemies, all of whom leave indelible marks on Ender’s life. Although the plot tends toward repetitive monotony towards the middle of the book, the vivid characterization of the protagonist and the logic behind his brilliant tactics save the story from becoming insipid. While those who eschew the details of politics and technology may find this novel dull, Ender’s Game will captivate fans of science fiction or military novels due to its complex characters and tactics, as well as its detailed writing style. – Karen T. ’16
